pool tables were mainly owned by monarchs and noblemen because the cost of having one built by a cabinet maker and imported was very high. However, the working classes often built their own crude versions of pool tables. Unfortunately because the table beds were made of wood they often warped within a few years. There was no standard size or shape to the early pool tables, and many early pool tables, billiards, snooker tables models were square, eventually changing to oblong (usually twice the length to width). By the 1500s, home pool tables were common in taverns and public places throughout France.
In 1826, the pool tables took a dramatic change as John Thurston of England invented the slate bed, giving the table a far smoother surface. Marble was used by some people but the cost of pool tables were far too high. Billiard slate was a lot heavier than wood, and thanks to it pool tables were a lot sturdier. In 1845 Thurston was granted a patent and starting making the billiard cushions out of vulcanized rubber, cork and leather. Later on, the green cloth/felt pool table cover / billiard table cloth was also improved upon, and added to the new slate tables to produce a pool table similar to those used today.

Pool Table Accessories
Pool table accessories are highly important pieces that will help you ensure the highest quality game possible while keeping your table's longevity intact. Ball racks, replacement pool table felt, pool cue chalk, pool table hooks, pool table brushes, pool table covers and scoring accessories are all important items that you can easily find online.
Pool Chalk will prevent the tip of your cue from slipping off the cue ball when taking a shot. You must always have pool chalk handy to play! Some of the more popular brand names are Master Chalk and Silver Cup Chalk. Make sure that you buy non-lead chalk, as dust from your chalk will linger on the table, floor and your clothing posing a potential long-term health risk.
Tip: Pool chalk comes in many various colors, so match your felt color with the color of chalk you purchase to minimize visible dust on your table surface.
Pool table brushes are key when you are trying to keep a finely groomed playing table. Brushes will keep your pool table felt clean and tight, giving it a long lasting life and beautiful looking finish. It is a good idea to have a table brush and use it every two weeks to keep your table clean.
Pool table covers are a must for all pool tables. Keeping your surface scratch and spill free is definitely a high-priority. If your table is not being used, make sure the felt is covered to reduce dust collection or even sunlight fading.
Pool table scoring is important for specific games, and will allow you to keep track of points and win-loss records. Chalk boards, tally balls and bottles, and game beads are popular scoring devices that won't cost you much to add.
